In spring each year the jet stream nudges northwards and brings unsettled, wet weather to the UK for the month of April. Todays forecast was for a clear, dry morning that would gradually deteriorate as a heavy rain shower approached into the afternoon. This would be finished off with a dose of heavy snow into the late afternoon and early evening. I travelled to Loch Katrine in the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park to sit by the loch for the day and record this April shower. For a location that is relatively accessible from the central belt, Loch Katrine has a wild and natural soundscape. Today the acoustic landscape was empty bar the calls of resident canadian geese and the gentle pitter patter of raindrops.
Keep an eye on my blog for an upcoming podcast episode that will feature the sounds that I recorded today.
